“America Idol” had 10 million more viewers than the 2006 Winter Olympics

“America Idol” had 10 million more viewers than the 2006 Winter Olympics

American Idol wins ratings

Fox network had out ranked NBC’s Winter Olympics with “American Idol”.  Preliminary figures from Nielsen Media Research said that “American Idol” averaged 26.3 million viewers this past Tuesday.  Only 16 million people watched the Winter Games on NBC during the same hour.

The age group of 18 to 49 is the target group that advertisers love and “American Idol” delivers the most to this age group.  Last week when the Olympics were not on air they had 30 million viewers.

It could be possible that people are not as motivated to watch this years Winter Olympics because it is in Italy.  Having the Olympics in North America may fire people up more about the games.


“American Idol” is in its fifth season and is still entertaining the masses.  Kelly Clarkson, the first season winner, has gone on to win two Grammy awards.  One Grammy is for Best Pop Vocal Album and the other for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.  Clarkson’s album “Breakaway” with the popular hit “Since U Been Gone” is the reason for the wins.

“American Idol” gives many singer hopefuls a chance at a music career that is often so difficult to achieve.  The show also helps find talent that may otherwise have been overlooked by the music industry.
